Advocates For Employers And Employees In Ohio
Most employer-employee relationships in Ohio are classified as “at will” employment. This essentially means that an employer can fire an employee for a good reason, bad reason or no reason, as long as the decision isn’t driven by a discriminatory or retaliatory motive.
However, sometimes the legal consequences surrounding an employment separation can seem unclear. Whether you’re an employer or an employee in a dispute, the employment law attorneys at Mockensturm, Ltd. can advocate for your rights.
Representation For Employees Who Have Been Wrongfully Terminated
Losing your job is incredibly stressful and being unfairly dismissed adds another layer of anxiety to the situation. Employers may try to disguise their unlawful actions by pointing to poor job performance or other workplace issues, but that doesn’t mean you should stay silent. Speak with a knowledgeable attorney about available legal remedies if you feel you may have been wrongfully terminated due to:
- Making a sexual harassment claim
- Filing a workers’ compensation claim
- Collective bargaining
- Taking FMLA time
- Reporting safety violations
If you’ve been wrongfully let go from your position, you may be entitled to the recovery of lost past wages and benefits, lost future wages and benefits, and money damages for emotional distress.
